Her Outback Cowboy is book one in the Prickle Creek series. I recently read book two in this series and I enjoyed the character of Lucy so much I was eager to read book one where Lucy is the main character.

In Her Outback Cowboy we are introduced to the four cousins, Lucy, Liam, Jemima and Sebastian.
Confirmed city-girl Lucy is called back to Prickle Creek farm, along with her three cousins, to help their grandparents work the farm. The cousins decide betwe

The first words that come to mind to describe this book is sweet, wholesome, first love and family and that about sums up HER OUTBACK COWBOY. It is one of those feel good reads that isn't bogged down with deep emotion baggage; it truly is a story about reuniting first love and coming home.

Seaton leads the way for further Outback adventures with not only Lucy's cousin clan but maybe even the vet. I'm looking forward to it!

I am very happy to say that I requested and was gifted a copy of this novel via NetGalley; this is my honest opinion after choosing to read this delightful book. The pivotal character in the story is the Grandmother, Helena, who contacts her four grandchildren(Lucy, Sebastian, Jemima, and Liam) and instigates their return to her home, Pickle Creek Farm near Pilliga Scrub, where they all grew up after a tragic accident killed their parents. Gran is a true matriarchal figure and all four cousins, ...more

I always wanted to go to Australia but after reading this, I’m not so sure! They have lots of flies and other irritating and dangerous critters! If it weren’t for the cowboy next door, Lucy would stay away from the worst of it too!

Lucy and her three cousins are asked to come back to their grandparent’s ranch. Lucy is the first to say yes I will come but also the one who wants to be the first to leave. They don’t know why they were asked to come home. When they all get there, their grandmother p

Another sensational read from Annie Seaton.
I was captivated from the very first page and struggled to put it down.
I actually felt I was in Prickle Creek and that's a brilliant talent that Annie has. Tangling you into the pages of the story.
Cannot wait for the next book from Prickle Creek.

Lucy Bellamy is at work when she gets a phone call from her grandmother; Gran wants her to come home for a little while Lucy’s grandfather is in hospital for knee replacement surgery. Gran needs help on the farm, so Lucy figures she will be able to finish her important project remotely, while giving her Gran a hand. Lucy had spent enjoyable moments on the farm, but her life is in the big city, Sidney, not in the outback where there are flies, dust, and the heat. However she recalls rather fondly ...more

Theme: broadband makes even the dusty outback bearable.
Annie and her three cousins return to the station when her grandparents are getting too elderly to get the harvest in themselves. A past tragedy saw this younger generation scatter to urban jobs. Now the question of succession arises and the young people have to ask if they could bear to live on the station. Annie has next-door's owner, her first boyfriend, as an added attraction.

No great surprises but we get a good study of modern Aussie l

Lucy loves working in advertising and being in the city suits her. She grew up as a country girl and when her grandmother calls her and her cousins, asking them to come back home, she reluctantly agrees. Returning to the family farm brings back some difficult memories, but maybe being there will also heal Lucy and make her feel more fulfilled. The last person Lucy expects to meet is her old flame Garth. He's taken over the farm next door and is still single. He'd love to get reacquainted with Lu ...more

The deftly woven tapestry of life in the Pilliga Scrub is colored first by the owners of the farm, Gran and Pop who are tied to their four grandchildren by their birth and by the death of their three mothers in a car accident. Sebastian Richards a 6'6" photographer, Jemima Smythe an "easy to get on with" famous model, Liam Smythe a London news reporter, and Lucy Bellamy a graphic designer are the four cousins who must help run the ranch or it will be sold. Their neighbor Garth Mackenzie is the ...more

Prickle Creek #1

Four phone calls are made to cousins requesting they return to Prickle Creek. Two men and two women who have found their way into the world and have successful jobs are called back to see their grandfather in hospital. The four are faced with a huge decision presented by their grandmother and my guess is that there will be four books in this series that will star Lucy Bellamy (first), Sebastian “Seb” Richardson, Jemima Smythe and her brother Liam

What a story..... Although I already have my own cowboy, it makes me want to go to the outback.. While reading this story, snow makes you feel as though your right there along with the character within the book.

Lucy Bellamy doesn't want to go home. She has a job she loves in the city, yet when her Grandmother ask her to come home, she does. There she sees her first love, Garth Mackenzie and he wants Lucy to share his life as his wife. Will Lucy stay or will she go! Ms. Seaton is a brilliant novelist that brings the Outback alive. Her characters are strong and fiercely loyal to family.
This is a great book I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.

Lucy, a graphic designer/copywriter, didn't heed her cousin and best friend, Sebastian's, warning and instead agrees to pay her Pop and Gran a visit, for the first time in three years, much to Seb's dismay, helping on the farm while Pop recovers from knee replacement surgery. Home always carries painful memories of the family she no longer has, having lost her mom and dad within months of each other. At least she won't have to face her long-time crush, and her grandparents' neighbor

When her grandmother asks her to return home and help out on their outback property, Lucy Bellamy reluctantly agrees. But there's no way she's sticking around longer than she has to, even after she comes face-to-face with her first love, Garth Mackenzie. However, the more time she spends with Garth, the harder she finds it to choose between returning to the city or staying in the country. Will Garth be convince Lucy that they deserve a second chance at happy ever after?

As the introductory story in a new series, Prickle Creek, Her Outback Cowboy hits all the right notes on giving just enough background to entice and pull at my interest while leaving so much unspoken left for me to discover along the way.

The grandchildren are summoned home by their grandmother to impart news and future plans for the family. This is a family that has been hit with tragedy on several occasions and has become the center of all the cousin’s lives. While e

Her Outback Cowboy by Annie Seaton is a wonderful book with lots of love, laughs, a rekindled romance with her first love and a long lasting love for her grandparents.

This is a tough one to review for me. I had a tough time with this one, I've read better by Annie.
It was basically Lucy I think that didn't sit well with me, totally unrelateable and Garth wasn't that much better. I liked Liam and the rest of the cousins however they were minor players. I loved Gran and Pops! Now those two made the book. She was strict, hardworking and yet so kind to her grands when it came down to it.

My first thought while reading this book was that I really hope this is the first in a new series. I am really interested in Liam and Sebastian's histories. This book had such a strong, but a little vulnerable family dynamic. Lucy and her cousins reminded me of mine. Although you may not see each other often, once reunited it is like you haven't been apart. They were supportive and joking with each other, such a great part to the story. And when Gran told the reason for her mood, like an arrow t ...more

This is book one in the Prickle Creek series and it features Lucy Bellamy and Garth MacKenzie. Although there are other things happening in this story and with other characters, Lucy's decision on where to live her life and what to do with it is the main thread.

Annie Seaton writes in a way that takes me to Australia, though I've never been, and I can almost feel the weather, the red dusty roads, the roos and the dogs. I also feel a tremendous sense of family in her stories. There were a couple

The last place Lucy Bellamy wants to be is the family spread in the Australian Outback. She's made a very nice life for herself in the city and that's where she wants to stay. Family calls though so off she goes along with her 3 cousins. When faced with the fact that they will need to take over the family ranch or it will be sold since the grandparents are getting older, the four decide to each put in their time to keep that from happening. Seeing her ex Garth Mackenzie is a nice perk of being b ...more

It has been awhile since I have sat down with one from this author so it was a delight in itself. Also since I have a nephew and his wife who live in Australia I get to have a clearer picture when finished if I am fortunate. This one is also it seems a second chance romance with Lucy the one who gets shown exactly what is real. Garth is the one I sided with the most sighing for him. They both have a different mindset but it is delightful seeing the direction it actually goes. The romance grows g ...more

I won this book from Goodreads giveaways. I was no required to give a good review. All thoughts are my own. This is a great story about a couple who's love of family brings them back to the same area. Their families owned ranches next to each other for generations, and the two of them grew up and fell in love, but they went the their separate ways because of University.

I gave this book 4 Stars 

This book was a cute story and I love how it started off kind of glum with Angie leaving her love, Liam, behind in London. I liked how they met up again by pure accident. However neither of them wanted to get involved with anyone for the fear of being hurt and left alone again. They play the hand that is dealt and try to stay away. However, a cake needed cannot make itself. But the question is, is the secret formula ( and a li
